A PATCHWORK OF FAITH
As members of a unique community that values the faith commitment of all its members and is committed to respond to what Vatican II called the Universal Call to Holiness, we are privileged to speak our faith freely. As such, in this Year of Faith, members of the Georgian Court Community are asked to share their faith, in the spirit of NPR’s “This I Believe Series,” by sharing the meanings of their world, their religious traditions and/or the narrative of their journey of faith.
As you peruse our blog, read about the miracle of parenting in uncertain times as well as one professor’s take on the intersection of spirituality and science. Another contributor writes about his walk with God over the years and a faculty member’s poetry explores his walk with God through the stages of life as husband, father, caregiver and faithful servant.
These are just a few posts that we hope will keep you coming back for more.
We ask you, as a member of this community, to exercise your privilege and to respond to the call to share your faith with others in the community by writing a short essay (about 250-500 words) that can be read and perhaps otherwise published. You may choose to submit your contribution anonymously. (Please tell us in the body of your entry if you would like your name withheld upon publishing.)
Like a patchwork quilt, these essays will piece together the faith stories of community members; students, staff, faculty, administrators, alumni, trustees, to reveal the vibrant meaning that drives this university.
Thank you for sharing!
